I agree. But as I've proposed and asked before, do we really need a
revised FDL or other new license to achieve that goal? Wouldn't it
suffice to put the primary content under the (L)GPL and the
"invariant sections" under a simple unlimited-distribution,
The GPL/Lesser GPL are specificially designed for software. And for
either of those to be suitable for documentation, they would need
extensive changes. For example, large parts section 2 simply cannot
apply to documents.
Such a change would also allow for documents which are completly
invariant, something the GFDL specifically disallows.
